    It's obvious they're trying to fix the lagging but they aren't succeeding very well! :-\

    My town isn't too bad. It lags a little but is still playable.

    I have noticed that when visiting friends it's the people who have all their characters on indoor tasks that make it lag really bad. All those people coming out of a building all at once really slow my game down. I don't even have much of a problem with people with house farms or a lot of decorations. And I've seen sideshow bob in more then half of my neighbors towns which just compounds the problem.

    Last update took my phone from bicycle speed to grandma speed. Cannot use the phone to visit friends. I am on android and will be, so I hope they fix the fix that fixed the fix. :mrgreen:

    Ok So in the past two days I have had 4 updates.
    One to remove the Easter stuff.
    One to add the friendship stuff.
    One to fix the FP stuff,
    And this last one was to fix the lag I guess. Because my game is running like normal now. I play on a kindle if that makes any difference. But just hang in there, they are trying to fix it.

    I play on a kindle and it didn't fix the lag for me. Storing all the characters, buildings and decorations besides Homer and the Simpson's house helps but not completely.

    The after Easter issues were created intentionally by EA. All they need to do is release the pre-Easter game files with a few minor tweaks to fix the problems.
    Ratman would like permission to say you is wrong.

    I haven't been able to play since Easter update, not EA's doing though, and I cant afford a tablet any time soon, so I guess im done right now...Im kinda disappointed but hopefully I will be back playing eventually...maybe end of summer...but in the mean time I have a couple of other games ive been progressing in. But what OP said, just hang in there, wouldn't do EA any good to keep it like this forever, and who would want to lose there business to someone like Family Guy :shock: ewwwww so just keep trudging... it will work out in the end.

    Ratman is up his own @rse unfortunately. This forum misses Josh Sherer. Josh was a troll with style, rather than just a troll.

    Mine is still lagging but a lot better after the Easter update.

    Nothing like pre and during Easter tho. That had zero lag issues.

    Ratman is not a troll. Ratman was just saying his game is fine.

    Framing matters. What you actually said was: "Ratman is on ipad and it is fine. Ratman thinks your making a mountain out of a mole hill."

    Apparently dismissing any concern the OP had as overblown. It seems, almost to get a rise out of those with the issue OP described. From my perspective, and, I suspect from others' perspective as well, the behavior mimics earlier behavior and looks to be trollish. A troll with a tired schtick. Are you Karl Malone? A terrible character from a terrible Stephen King novel? It's not 1994. Give it a rest.

    Regardless of Ratman's feelings on the subject, I still can't get into my game.

    Ratman didn't read all that but ratman will just disagree.

    The latest update (it downloaded fast, so you might not have spotted it) fixed the lag for me this morning.
    For anyone still experiencing the really rotten lag, try clearing stored game data, which should help. Definitely do-able on an iPad or iPhone. I'm not sure how on other devices.


    And I totally agree Ratman is a troll. Probably a human donut, truth be told and quite possibly he's actually Josh with a new avatar.

    Just because there's two popular forum trolls, doesn't mean they are one and the same. Also, JoshSherer>>>>>> Ratman5674.

    Ratman is purely popular now in the absence of Josh. When the ban is lifted and Josh returns, no one will give a crap about Ratman and his base level trolling.

    Wow, Ratman sure is stuck on himself.

    Anyway, the last update helped me a good bit, but it's far from perfect. It seems one area of town is the worst, while I get occasionally lag elsewhere. It's playable, but still needs work. Krustyland hasn't had any problems, no matter how much money, XP or people are on the screen.

    If I was the dev team for Tapped Out, I would make a release that puts it back like it was before Easter, so we have a smooth game, then work on the problems for the next update. And this time, they really need to test it before releasing it.
